Questions for the Heart and Spirit

  1. 1.       Have you ever been in a place where a natural phenomenon, such as an earthquake, tornado, hurricane, thunder storm or the like occurred?  What was it that impressed you about it?  Did you see it as an act of God?  Why or why not?
  2. Think about a time when you encountered silence.  What impressed you about that time?  Was it an unusual occurrence for you?  Try being silent for three minutes, and discuss with your group/family the thoughts you had during that silent period.
  3. If God asked you to give up your most precious possession (other than your family)as an act of worship, what would it be, and why?
  4. The Bible describes God as loving and merciful, as well as a God of judgment.  Which of these two elements of Gods character have you experienced in your life?  Share your experience.
